Hat Box Giveaway #1



For this week's first giveaway Her Ladyship's Hat Box is offering a wonderful treat: a boxed set of unsigned paperback copies of Soulless, Changeless, Blameless, Heartless and Timeless, aka the complete Parasol Protectorate series by New York Times bestselling author Gail Carriger, as well as an unsigned hardcover edition of Etiquette & Espionage, the first book in Gail Carriger's delightful new Finishing School series.

If you'd like to own all six books, in comments to this post name an urban fantasy novel that is currently available to order online (can be traditionally or self-published) that you think I would enjoy reading by midnight EST on Thursday, May 30th, 2013. Also, in order to win you must name one novel; simply tossing your name in the hat box doesn't qualify as an entry this time. I will choose one name at random from everyone who participates and send the winner the Gail Carriger books. I will also buy and read the novel recommended by the winner, and post a review of it here on Disenchanted & Co. in the near future (which is why you have to name something for the contest.) This giveaway is open to everyone on the planet, so please join in.

  7. Try THE HERETIC by Joseph Nassise or one of the other books in the Templar Chronicles series. I've enjoyed the first few.

    (I've been dying to try the Carriger novels!)

  11. A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. I'm waiting for the third in the trilogy with bated breath. If you like Diana Gabaldon, you'll love Deborah Harkness!

  14. The Devil Inside by Jenna Black, first book in the ingram Kingsley series? Different but very enjoyable. I've also been wanting to try this author for a while now. Thanks for the giveaway.

  15. I'm not entering because I have the Parasol Protectorate books, but I want to point you toward "Witch Way to Murder" by Shirley Damsgaard. I love this series!

  16. Sterling by Dannika Dark has a pretty great premise and interesting characters.

  17. I really liked Blade Song by JC Daniels (really Shiloh Walker), which came out a while ago. I actually just read the 2nd one (Night Blade) and in doing that reread Blade Song. Blade Song is great and ties up well, but don't read Night Blade if you want an tied up ending, it's not a cliff-hanger per se, but it leaves a lot open, and the 3rd won't come out until January!! Don't say I didn't warn you!!

  18. A Rush of Wings by Adrian Phoenix, Slashback by Rob Thurman, Webmage by Kelly McCullough, Unshapely Things by Marc Del Franco plus too many more to name! I love UF!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I highly recommend the "Black Wings" series by Christina Henry. I think you would enjoy them!

  20. Does The Art of Wishing count as Urban Fantasy? I know it's a fantasy. Anything with Genies in it gets that title, but Urban? Not sure. I like the Forbidden Games Series by LJ Smith.

    Yes. They're all YA.

  21. Does it have to be a new book?? The bar by which I compare all urban fantasy is still "War for the Oaks" by Emma Bull. To this day, I still dream of having a phouka of my very own ... ;p

  22. I would recommend the Allie Beckstrom series by Devon Monk but can also second the suggestion posted previously for the Jennifer Estep series. All are excellent reading.

  23. Lynn,
    I am not sure if you have already read these books or not, but I just started them (after many recommendations by my best friend). Nalini Singh's Guild Hunter series starting with Angel's Blood. I am about at the halfway point of Angel's Blood and love this book! I have already called my girlfriend to pick up the rest of the books she has, but this may be a series that I just outright buy since I like the first books so much already.

  24. I really like the Stormwalker series by Allyson James. So far there are Stormwalker, Firewalker, Shadowwalker and Nightwalker in the series. I like the fact that she is usually a lot of Native American myths and legends.

  25. My all time favorite urban fantasy is Kim Harrison's Rachel Morgan's series:

    1.Dead Witch Walking
    2.The Good, The Bad, and the Undead
    3.Every Which Way But Dead
    4.A Fistful of Charms
    5.For A Few Demons More
    6.The Outlaw Demon Wails
    7.White Witch, Black Curse
    8.Black Magic Sanction

  28. UF and not steampunk? Hm... so many good ones
    Mercy Thompson series
    Iron Druid Chronicles
    Fever series
    Kitty Norville Series
    Women of the Otherworld
    Elemental Assassin series
    Charlie Madigan series (the one I suggest the most since it's been dropped and I just love this series and hope the author, Kelly Gay finds a way to do more. Better Part of Darkness is the first one).

    Short list but I know I could come up with more. Tried not to repost what was written, but I think I may have anyway.

  31. There are a couple out there that I recently enjoyed. The Sweetest Dark by Shana Abe and A Conspiracy of Alchemists by Leisel Schwarz. A Conspiracy of Alchemists is a mixture of steampunk and urban fantasy. I hope you enjoy them
